adidas Originals has teamed up with professional skateboarder and artist Mark Gonzales – also known as The Gonz — for a special collaboration as part of the relaunch of the Superstar 80s sneaker. A video to mark the release includes some insight into Gonzales’ own creative ambitions, as well as his thoughts on what it means to be a pioneer. He also shared a personal anecdote about getting hand-me-down shoes as a child and figuring out ways to make them his own, which perhaps provided the inspiration behind the shoe’s design. The clean white design is perfect for those looking for a simple iteration of a classic silhouette, or for those wanting to add their own unique impression to a blank canvas, as Gonzales does in the clip. The adidas Originals Superstar 80s by Gonz will release online and at select adidas stockists from February 9.
